Won't start after going down in a slide on gravel


New member
Laid my 2015 CTX700 down in a curve (90 degree turn - went in too hot and ended up sliding on the gravel). After it was picked up off of me we tried to start it. Does 2 weak cranks and then solenoid clicks. Battery cables tight and no apparent damage other than cosmetic and my pride. I'm OK except for swollen ankle, scraped and swollen knee and a few bruises. T-Rex engine guard paid for itself though - could have been much worse without it. So, any ideas on the starting issue?


Last time I had that happen, I tightened the battery cables down and that worked. The cables looked fine, but apparently they weren't.
